   Ways of improv-ing work and life [#DifferentKindOfTalk]


Methodology & Culture
Methodology & Culture
Beginner & novice level
Room 4 Wednesday from 12:00 til 12:50

Ever wondered how improvisation applies to work and life in general? Are you looking for techniques to increase your team’s creativity? How about more positive-attitude team meetings? How about saying “Yes and” instead of “Yes but”? Have you heard about the importance of plussing, a term introduced by Walt Disney?

Join me to this interactive session. There will be plenty of interaction, games, fun and brainstorming. Duration is ~45 mins. Want to read more before the talk? I totally recommend Creativity, Inc, from Ed Catmull, president of Pixar and Disney animations.

Only "yes and" answers accepted!
